Adventures in Apartment Hunting, Craigslist Local Edition: Part IV

Adventures in Apartment Hunting, Craigslist Local Edition: Part IV
Still can't get over this insane craigslist ad that's been up for over two weeks. Highlights bulleted below:
  • I buy nice patio furniture or grills because I want to use nice patio furniture and grills.
  • (according to what my cousin tells me, I am not permitted legally to speak about safety).
  • We will probably schedule a showing after work, elevating the probability of running into another tenant (most have 9 to 5 work schedules) permitting you to ask questions in private.
  • We rehabbed all the units in this building to a higher standard, making it possible to offer more than the other units you may compare us to, and allowing us to select the most desirable tenants.
  • we should probably mention that all the appliances, including the built in over the stove microwave, are STAINLESS STEEL.
  • Our camera doesn't make the rooms look huge like others professional advertisers manage to do, but this prevents disappointing visits, when you see our units in person you will experience the positive realization that that our rooms are just bigger and nicer.
  • Our units are so desired that tenants have supplemented their applications with resumes to differentiate themselves over others.
  • most people have multiple careers
  • Our Vacancies have always been the result of Marriage
  • May I advise you to like the Facebook page we created

Please look and like Pasieka Apartments on facebook, We are family owned apartment building on Belmont. We offer what the others cant, simply because the building is OWNER OCCUPIED = management lives onsite!... permitting me to resolve maintenance issues immediately, I clear snow after it falls (not when the snow removal company gets here or has time), I buy nice patio furniture or grills because I want to use nice patio furniture and grills. I DO NOT HAVE the big apartment complexes' goal of just filling units, we live here, and history has shown us that by being selective we do not have vacancies for extended periods of time. Usually keys are handed from the former tenant to the new tenant. You are more than invited to speak with other tenants in the building and asked their opinions on the building, other tenants, crime and safety (according to what my cousin tells me, I am not permitted legally to speak about safety). We will probably schedule a showing after work, elevating the probability of running into another tenant (most have 9 to 5 work schedules) permitting you to ask questions in private.Are you looking for an updated and rehabbed unit in an owner occupied building, almost on top of an underground blue line stop, and seconds away from the 90 / 94 freeways, walking distances from Jewel, Walgreen's, Shopping / strip malls, restaurant and fast food establishments, Polish village delicatessens and Bakeries, Bars and cafes....
We rehabbed all the units in this building to a higher standard, making it possible to offer more than the other units you may compare us to, and allowing us to select the most desirable tenants.
This unit has a dishwasher and we should probably mention that all the appliances, including the built in over the stove microwave, are STAINLESS STEEL.Pictures are worth a thousand words, we have attached a few and invite you to email us if you would like to see more, for example a higher resolution images of the floor plan with dimensions. Our camera doesn't make the rooms look huge like others professional advertisers manage to do, but this prevents disappointing visits, when you see our units in person you will experience the positive realization that that our rooms are just bigger and nicer. We also hear that we have more closet space than others as well... no radiators taking up space and constraining furniture arrangement... we have central AC and heat that is ducted in the walls where it should be. Also all the plumbing and electrical has been updated: AT LEAST ONE OUTLET ON EVERY WALL, NO CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE WHILE TAKING A SHOWER due to people in the building using plumbing fixtures...Our units are so desired that tenants have supplemented their applications with resumes to differentiate themselves over others. The characteristics of our management style will continue to permit a positive experience for our tenants and ourselves (the owners), everyone in the building is busy with life, most people have multiple careers or are attending a university and holding a job. The building has been in our family since the the 80's, this vacancy is becoming available because the tenant is getting married. Our Vacancies have always been the result of Marriage, employment relocation, and on one occasion, due to the request of other tenants through management. since 2008, we have had only a had full of clogged drains / garbage disposal, burned out light bulbs, and backed up dishwashers... since we did not cut corners in the rehab, we are able to spend time working on future property improvements like our green roof.

May I advise you to like the Facebook page we created, allowing a future means of maintaining communication ... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.131243100244375.10755.117086008326751&type=1&l=176c041c7a

Are you looking for access to everything, but at an affordable price...that's only possible with us, situated on the Avondale / Logan square line with Old Irving Park to the north and Roscoe village / Wrigglyville to the east!

located almost halfway between downtown (6 blue line stops and your in the loop) and OHare (8 blue line stops and your at OHare).

feet from the Belmont blue line / less than a 3 minute walk, THIS IS AN UNDERGROUND PLATFORM which is far cozier than the above ground platforms in the blistering cold or sweltering heat. Think being at the California platform when a subzero wind blows on you or the Addison stop in the summer with rush hour traffic elevating temperatures into triple digits with unbearable humidity....

seconds from the 90 94 freeway on and off ramps at Kimball and Belmont

With New construction and condo development continuing in this area as well as new bakeries and art studios opening up, you should notice the trend....however this area is still affordable compared to the wicker park lincoln park areas. The fact that you can actually find street parking near the building is an additional bonus over these areas.

We have a floor plan pdf and video available we can email you (or use the links), permitting you to see the apartment on your computer screen. the link below should take you to the you tube video and everything is pretty much on the pasieka apartments facebook page.

Laundry room in the building allows you to do all your laundry at once and gives you the extra space in the unit, where you need it.

Tenant pays for electricity (the heat electric forced air which makes a winter electric bill larger than a summer bill, but the math over a year makes sense to have one utility service (gas meter delivery charge is $30, meaning $360 a year regardless of whether or not you use it)

Our leases must end in summer month of the consecutive year, preferably no earlier than the last day of may or later than the last day of July, and as long as no other tenants have issues with you we offer options to renew. The occupant of this unit would have been renewing for the 5th year and her rent has not increased in the 5 years she was here. We really liked her and are sad that she is leaving our building.

Garage / parking space may be become available and is currently in the works, but it will require additional rent... most of our tenants have cars and have managed to park in the area without even acquiring permits, With the CTA bus and Blue line terminal at 3 minutes walk from here, one can easily live here without a car, and most long term residence do not use their cars or even end up selling them.

No pets in the building SORRY.... this permits us to not have to worry about pet allergens or barking / bite accidents in the building.

We require a Good credit score and screen our tenants thoroughly (we are charged 40$ to process a social security number / applicant and require applicants to pay this amount in cash before we process their applications.... please bring two forms of identification, we are comfortable with ILLINOIS state drivers licenses or ID cards and US passports.We will not lease to anyone with a criminal history

Water, trash, and sewer are payed by the owner, the Unit is all electric and that utility is the responsibility of the tenant.

Rent is $1100 for the first two occupants and $50 for each additional occupant.

We thoroughly screen our tenants and found that by being selective, we maintain a high retention rate of current tenants.
